Horizon & Blockchain & ICO
The Vision of Horizon:
Horizon is an ambitious but realistic project. Bermuda is one of the International business centers within the central americas, with frequent entrepeneurs using it as a stopover destination for both vacation and business purposes. Unfortuantely, the Internet there is unreliable, slow, and over-priced given the level of service.Incredibly, proper 4G LTE Internet is not offered in Bermuda. ISPs there lack the experience of International teams and experience. Horizon aims to change all this by setting up actual wireless towers and directly transmitting high speed, 4g LTE wireless broadband to subscribers within the region. This will not only have a much lower cost than what the bloated older ISPs in the region require with their difficult-to-maintain copper networks, it will also offer speeds over 20 times faster.

Solution: Using cutting edge fixed wireless technology that is currently being used to supply high speed internet around the world in major markets, Horizon once capitalized, can quickly deploy its fixed wireless solution, with very minor capital requirements compared to traditional telecom companies while driving down the cost of maintaining the network well below our competitors.
Once Horizon is actively using the available spectrum (wireless real estate), the company will have legal right and protections. This gives us tremendous advantage to competition and another hard asset to our balance sheet.
Due to the long range, proper distribution and relatively flat terrain our 3rd party experts and surveys show Horizon can cover 95% of Bermuda and BVI with fewer than half a dozen towers. This enables us to keep our infrastructure cost low, while still providing redundancy in the event of unscheduled power outages (and concurrently, damage or equipment failure). Our technology can, at launch, provide 150mbs + per customer, which are speeds unheard of in these nations except for a select few. Horizon have partnership agreements with TV content providers and VoIP networks to have a full “triple play” product available at launch.
The following is a delineation of Internet tests directed by Team Horizon Communications:
Horizon will use blockchain innovation in various diverse zones:
· Installments - Receive installments from clients in crypto control, at a marked down rate contrasted with charges in the money, to help with crypto infiltration and further acknowledgment
· Finance - Paying our workers and temporary workers in crypto
· Information Storage - Integrate blockchain innovations, for example, Storj or Filecoin into our client entryway to furnish clients with decentralized encoded record stockpiling arrangements
· VPN Services - Works with blockchain VPN arrangements like Mysterium or Privatix so clients have VPN arrangements introduced on their web access.
· Re-put into CryptoCommunity - Horizon intends to reinvest prescribed income, budgetary guidance, to blocking organizations and ICOs known to Horizon to profit the two purchasers and purchasers.
The HRZN Token will have numerous benefits for its holders. To begin with, Horizon subscribers within Bermuda can use the token to pay for their Internet service at a 50% discount compared to paying with fiat. This will hopefully provide a strong incentive for subscribers to purchase the token on exchanges. Additionally, the token can be used anywhere in the world to utilize various data-storage services that will be offered by the Horizon ISP.The HRZN token itself will offer direct profit benefits as well. Horizon will use a percentage of its profits to buy-back the token on exchanges.
This way, HRZN holders are exposed to the profits of the company as well. In short, HRZN will offer various utility and profit benefits. I’m also pleased to notice that the team will have their tokens locked under vesting restrictions for an entire 2 years.
